Counting My Blessings

All day I have been thinking about how blessed I am. I have the greatest family, excellent doctors, a fantastic support team, an amazing baby boy who will be here very soon, and I have God on my side.

My family… I have no idea what I would do or where I would be without my family. Over the past couple of years I have put my family through so many things and they have always loved me unconditionally. All of the hard times I have had through this pregnancy, they were always there. I want to thank every one of my family members who have been there for me. I never thank you, or never thank you enough, but I want every single one of you to know that I appreciate you and I love you to the moon and back 1,000 times!

My doctors. I knew when I moved to Texas, Camden would have the best doctors. I never thought that I would have (in my opinion) the best doctors! All of my doctors are so supportive and amazing. They never talk negatively about my son and they always seem to put what is best for him before anything else. They are so down to earth and filled with love. I am so very thankful for everyone of my doctors and their nurses! Every one of them are amazing!

My support team (YOU). Where would I be without you guys? You all pray for me and my baby boy, you think about us, you give me such encouraging words, and you have helped me and my son out financially. Without all of your prayers, I seriously don’t think I would be where I am today and I don’t think I would have my son either. If there is anything that I have learned through my pregnancy, its that THERE IS POWER in prayer!! I am so very thankful for every person that is supporting me and Camden!! You have all made me cry numerous times from feeling too incredibly blessed!! I don’t know most of you, but you all have a very special place in my heart. 

My sweetly amazing, soon to be born, baby boy, Camden. Now I am really starting to tear up. I don’t even know him yet, and he has completely stole my heart. I have been amazingly blessed with such a SPECIAL baby boy. I know that he doesn’t have any legs or all of his arms, but in my eyes and heart, he is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! God doesn’t make any mistakes! I don’t really know how to explain it, but I am so ready! I am ready for him to be here so I can love him, cuddle him, and spoil him rotten. I am so ready for him to be here so I can watch him grow! I am ready to watch him learn how to do things. I am ready for when he gets his first arms and hands and for when he gets his first wheelchair. I am ready for every little milestone. I know that it is going to be so hard, but I can already imagine that little smile he will have. That smile is what will make it all worth it. I loooove my Camden and I will do anything for him!

My God. I love my God. Without HIM, I wouldn’t have my family, my doctors, my support group, or my baby boy. Without God, all of this is impossible. Without God, I wouldn’t have the strength I have. Without God, I would have nothing at all. If I don’t have anyone to talk to, God is always there. When no one else has my back, God is always there. When I am worried and stressed out, God is always there. When I have something on my heart, God is always there. Wherever I go, whatever I do, whatever I need, God is always there. Sometimes when I am stuck in a hard spot and I feel like I have no where to turn and have no idea what to do, I just remember that I have God on my side. God will always provide. 

While I am counting my blessings and being thankful tonight, I would like to thank a very sweet woman, that I don’t even know, who started a Scentsy Fundraiser for Camden on Facebook! You don’t know how thankful I am for you and how incredible of a person you are! I am very very blessed to have someone like you as a part of mine and Camden’s support team! (To check out the Scentsy fundraiser for Camden, click here and if you do not have Facebook and would like to donate click here.) 

I just have to brag on my Mom again! She is doing so great with her little crochet business!! She has made a couple of new items and I HAVE to share because I am extremely proud of her and well, she is basically the best at what she does!!


If you would like to place an order for any of these items or an item of your own choice, click here.

I have a regular appointment with my OB, Dr. Fong, on Tuesday and an ultrasound with my Perinatologist, Dr. Brown-Elliot, on Wednesday. I’ll be posting an update soon!!


One thought on “Counting My Blessings

  1. I live in Providence Village. Your mom's work is amazing!!! I see her work on Facebook. I wish I had a little one to purchase for. I just found out about your blog and I can't stop reading. You are such a strong woman. God doesn't make mistakes. Camden was sent here for a very special reason. 🙂
